My Computer CRASHED!!!!...I lost everything have been working on....
The Blog i sent out last week about 'building your foundation'...well my foundation has just been DESTROYED......This is by far the worst situation I have ever been in as a teacher....
I've lost lesson plans, documents, templates, powerpoints, forms, activities, handouts....EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!
I only have a few things save to my zip, and disc......the rest is in Computer Heaven!!!!
The smarty pants guys from IT in the County even ruined my "U Drive"......I swear to ya'll that I feel like finding another profession....
Keep in mind that I have been in the classroom for three/four years so the 'foundation' I was trying to build is NOW RUIN...I have to start back at square one...
